Cyber Security Tip
Are you able to recognize scams aimed at your business?

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has launched Operation Main Street, an effort with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and law enforcement to educate small business owners on how to stop scams targeting their businesses. 

To help, FTC released  Scams and Your Small Business, a guide for businesses detailing how to avoid, identify, and report scams. This guide includes topics such as...

How can I protect my business?
  • Train your employees.
  • Your best defense is an informed workforce. Explain to your staff how scams happen and share this brochure with them.
  • Encourage people to talk with their coworkers if they spot a scam. Scammers often target multiple people in an organization, so an alert from one employee about a scam can help prevent others from being deceived.
  • Train employees not to send passwords or sensitive information by email, even if the email seems to come from a manager. Then stick with the program - don't ever ask for sensitive data from employees by email.

Lakestone & Digital Wallets
(Apple, Google, & Samsung Pay)

Lakestone Business Credit Cards are compatible with your digital wallet!

You already have your phone out. Why dig for your wallet?

It's so simple & secure! But we hear those concerns...so...

How secure are digital wallets?
  • Your card information is not stored in your phone. It is encrypted and stored on a server.
  • Your fingerprint or face id are required at each transaction.
  • Each transaction sent to the vendor is encoded as a one-time-use token. Even if another party did got a hold of the token, it would be rejected.
Coming soon: You will be able to include your Lakestone Debit Card in your digital wallet as well.
